Fishing Reports

Plan your next fishing charter aboard the MV Manutere out of Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, NZ.

Back in business!!!

Back in business after a combined weather and maintenance break.  And some great weather to kick off with.

We headed out to the Astrolabe and had an excellent start with a lot of snapper coming up.   Quite a few undersize, but plenty of good ones amongst them.

We swung off the mark quite a bit but then started getting tarakihi predominately, with a few undersize kingies in the mix.

We reanchored  a couple of times when they slowed down, continuing to do well  as we got back onto them. A great day in all respects.

Saturday was another good one. The weather was cloudy initially, but beautiful by the afternoon. A little bit slower fishing initially, as the current had picked up in the interim, but that eased after the tide change, the fish started feeding harder and we ended up with a similar result  to the Thursday.

So hopefully the bush telegraph is working and we start getting a few more phonecalls

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
